The "Ros" society of Sevastopol, a forum for Russian nationalists in the Crimean naval city, has won a favorable ruling in its lawsuit against Ukrainian authorities. "Ros’s" activities and its publication had been suspended for inciting interethnic tension and questioning Ukraine’s territorial integrity; but the Ukrainian court overturned the prosecutor’s case against the group. Russian media had portrayed its cause as a civil rights issue. Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Grigory Karasin yesterday welcomed the court’s decision to lift the suspension as "balanced and tension-easing." (3)
